When you look at food photos, do you also study the dishes? Me too.
I picked this bowl up at Goodwill for $1.99.
This book was my paternal grandmother's. "The Complete Book of Sewing: Dressmaking and Sewing For the Home Made Easy," by Constance Talbot. Copyright 1943. (Related to THE Talbots? Does anyone know? I'll have to research that.)
Look at these pages! Beautiful illustrations. Believe it or not, there are some great ideas in here, some 67 years later.
There is an entire chapter devoted to "Restyling--Remodeling--Remaking." Nothing went to waste in those days. We're coming around full circle.
"Choosing Clothes According to Personality" -- Are you the Tailored Type, Feminine Type, or the Sophisticated Dramatic Type?
From a discussion about sewing machine care: "After using the machine for a long stretch, while sewing for your local Red Cross Unit perhaps, it will be necessary to clean your machine once a week to remove lint."
I'll leave you with this. Every year my husband's mother makes me a German Chocolate Cake for my birthday. Yes, an entire cake just for me. There is one piece left which will serve as a tasty breakfast tomorrow morning. Mmmm!
